Yes, we have an ia64 system here with a IDE drive on which IDE DMA
seems to work fine.  However, it's not an Itanium machine and doesn't
use the PIIX (or whatever its called) controller.  I don't think I
have ever succeeded in getting IDE DMA going on a Big Sur machine.  I
never tried to track it down to see whether its a hw or sw problem.
